Haitian Monument

The citadel is the largest fortress in the Americas! And people from all over the world come to see the sight, according to my personal guides – two local boys, who probably should have been at school, but followed me around instead.

Haiti was the first country in the world to free itself from colonization (1804). The Citadelle Laferrière was built to keep the newly independent nation of Haiti safe from French incursions.
